FACTS THAT SPEAK. By universal consent 1908 is one of the bad years in the story of the world's work. Business is slack. Money is not, earning a profit. There is a sadly high rate of unemployment. National recelipts show a woeful falling off. Workless men are standing idle in all the market places. The back street feel the pinch of hunger; Charitable Agencies are pressed beyond measure to meet the calls upon them. Every large city has this year a larger area of poverty and nakedness and under- feeding to attend to. One is glad to think that Rescues Agencies are so many as they are and that they are resolutely up and doing during these times of depression to save England from the scandal of the neglected little one. For it is the chil- dren who are the sorest sufferers. Among these Agencies Dr. Barnardo's Homes stand, as for 42 years they have stood, in the very front rank. The inspiration of their Founder who died three years ago is still potent in the Institutions which he left behind him, and to-day the Homes are doing a larger work than they have ever done. Their statistics are striking to the last degree. One reach of a, rescued Family which always numbers over 8,000 boys and girls. There were 2,804 admissions last year and the total admissions to date number 67,417. There are 137 separate Branches daily in active operation for different classes of the stranded and the destitute; 1,439 babies below five years of age under the care of the Homes and 1,075 who are in some way or other afflicted. This year they have emigrated to Canada 4 batches of trained young people -630 boys and 313 girls—bringing up their grand total to 20,670. The demand for these young people far exceeds the the supply: Canada warmly welcomes such additions to her community (although during the present, depression adult emi- gration is being discouraged) and her pub- lic officials testify that 98 per cent. of them are successes. Many of the boys and girls sent forth from the Homes in earlier years have now attained to positions of re- sponsibility in commercial, oivic and re- ligious life. 4,520 of the Eighth Thousand little peo- ple of the Homes are boarded-out in rural cottages—sent "back to the land" to reap all the benefits which the country has in store for a growing youngster. 1,100 young people are under Industrial Train- ing. Over a dozen trades are busily going, and the young workers are being; well fitted to earn their bread as the world's skilled workmen. There is a Creche for the little children of "mean streets" in the East End. There is a Castle for Babies; there are Hospitals for the suffering: there are training Shops and Schools and Laundries and Embroidery Rooms. Above all, there is Christian influence and Gospel teaching. Besides the teaching and clothing of these 8,000 destitute Little Ones, there is the feeding of them: -2.240 is required every day in this direction alone. The Homes are dependent entirely upon volun- tary contributions for their support. There is no State aid, and their invest- ments are. not sufficient to pay their Food Bill for two days. Mr William Baker, M.A., LL.B., the Honorary Director of the Homes, sits daily at, the receipt of custom at the Head Offices, 18 to 26, Step- ney Causeway, London, E., and we are sure he will be delighted, especially at the Christmas Season, to hear from any of our readers who sympathise to the extent of a cheque or postal order! of a ,cheque or postal order!
NOT RIGHT IN HIS MIND. CURIOUS DEFENCE AT BANGOR. At Ba.ngor on Tuesday, before Mr Wil- liam Pughe and other magistrates, Thomas Ainscow, a man who formerly held a good position in the town, but who now came from the workhouse to answer a charge of drunkenness, said he was not drunk. The explanation was that he was out of his mind. He asked why if he was drunk the police did not lock him up when he called at the police station, and so prevent him from going and breaking win- dows? When he came back and put a bottle of brandy to his moutih then the police pounced on him, no doubt thinking it was poison, but he reassured them and to'ld them it, was only brandy. Then they locked him up. But he wa,s not drunk, he was only wrong in his head. Mr Clegg Are you right in your head now? Ainseow (reflectively) Well, I am com- ing to. That's what I wanted to get to the workhouse for. Mr Clegg: Are you likely to remain in the workhouse? Ainscow: I would like to stop a couple of months till I get quite right. I have no means. -Superintendent Harris sa.id that tihe de- fendant. was in the habit of gcjing to his wife's house, and it was her windows he had smashed. He had taken all the furni- ture, sold it, and spent, the money. Ainscow: That is all rsght, but I didn't spend the money. I gave it away foolish- ly. I was not right, in my mind. The Bench adjourned the charge of drunkenness and bound Ainscow over to be of good behaviour for six months, it being understood that he would go straight back to the workhouse
HAPPY VALLEY STEPS,—The Llan- dudno Works Committee have had under consideration the question of improving the ashpha.lt steps above the Happy Val- ley, leading to the top of the Orme, and the Assistant Surveyor was instructed to obtain particulars of the cost of placing intervening steps on the path. "The Graphic" for December 19th and 26th will contain special four-page Sup- plements illustrating Dr. Sven Hedin's recent travels in Tibet, from photographs and sketches supplied especially to "The Graphic" by the famous explorer, to- gether with a brief account of his adven- tures.
FOOTBALL NOTES. I THE AMATEURS BEATEN BY DENBIGH,. The journey to Denbigh was made by the Llandudno Amateurs, and some cf their most ardent supporters by means of one of the motor charabancs of the Llan- dudno Motor and Garage Company, :.nd from all accounts it, was a very pleasasit and enjoyable one. Very unfortunately the morning did not open very promising- ir_ Z)- ly or there is no doubt but that many more would have availed themselves of the cheap rate arranged with the Com- pany. The team was not quite, at full strength, Jack Lunt being replaced at full back by Sam Williams. The game was a very pleasant one, but the visitors, although superior on the general run of the play, found the Den- bigh custodian too hard a nut to crack, and were beaten by two goals to nil, one goal being scored in each half. J. E. Williams was in rattling form, and time after time got through on his own only to see his final efforts brought to naught by the agility and resource of the opposing goalkeeper. The other forwards and also the halves were in good trim. Sam Wil- liams in the last line of defence was not so steady as usual, and has played many better games. This weakness entailed a lot of extra work on J. H. Jones, who acquitted himself well. The same teams meet again this after- noon on the Council Field in the third round of the Welsh Amateur Cup. The advantage of ground this time being with the Amateurs should tell in their favour, Those supporters of the Amateurs who saw the game on Saturday have not any serious misgivings as to the result of the cup-tie. In their opinion the Amateurs were clearly the better team, and were only beaten because of the extra good quality of the goalkeeping. Some of the players take the same view, so that at any rate they will take the field with con- fidence. Be the result what it may the game should be a very interesting one and stubbornly contested. Last season the Amateurs twice beat their conquerors of Saturday, on the Coun- cil Field by one goal to> nil, and at Den- bigh by three goals to two. The game on the Council Field was one of the most exciting of the season. If this afternoon's match is anything like as good it will be well worth going1 to see. Bangor were defeated on Saturday in the Welsh Cup Compet-iton at Rhyll the game taking place on the latter's ground. The score was two goals to one. In the same competition Nantwich beat Whit- church by two goals to nil. On the Council Field on Saturday St. George's and Dyffryn Road Schools met in the Schools League Competition, the Warren boys proving the better team by two goals to nil. The competition has aroused great enthusiasm amongst the Schoolboys, and will no doubt lead to good results. On the Council Field on Wednesday afternoon the Llandudno Celts played a friendly with Llanfairfechan. After a pleasant game the home team won by three goals to nil. By beating the "Wallabies" on Saturday at Cardiff, Wales re-asserted her supre- macy in the world of Rugby football. The game was a hard-fought one, during which both sides took and gave an im- mense amount, of gruelling. The score at the finish was Wales 1 goal two, tries (9 points), Australia 2 tries (6 points). Much to the surprise of the critics, Oxford faded to beat Cambridge on Satur- day at "Rugger," the final score being five points each. From reports of the match it would appear that with a little luck the Light Blues would have won, ft.r the brilliant Dark Blue three-quarters were quite put off their game by the, dash- ing Cambridge pack. The draw for the third round, to be played on January 9th, was made on Wed- nesday night as follows: --N,T elshpool v. Llanidloes, Aberystwyth v. Royal Welsh Warehouse, Rhyl v. Connah's Quay or Shotton United, Clhe,gter v. Nantwich, Oak Alyn Rovers v. Wrexham, Oswestry v. Druids, Wellington Town v. Wellington St. George's or Chirk, Aberdare or Mardy v. Milford United. .n.lI'tT'4! 1"
THE; MAN AND THE NET. At the Bettws-y-Coed Police Court, on Saturday Robert Jones, a freeholder of a small farm named Bwlch Bach, Dol- wyddelen, was summoned by Police Con- stable Evans on a charge of having been in unlawful possession of a ndt. The case was conducted by Superintendent Rees (Conway), and Mr T'wigge Ellis (Bethesda) defended. The constable stated that, on the nijght of November 27th he saw the defendant coming over a fence from land belonging to Mr Brandreth. In hvs hands he had a net 18ft. long by 6ft. wide. When asked what he was doing with it Jones made no reply, boult. next day he called I upon the witness and asked that he should not be reported, as the case would go bad for him, he 'ha,ving been in similar trouble before. Evidence was given by the defendant. He said that he went to Dolwydclelen on business, and afterwards called at the Eilen's Castle Hotel, where he met Rees Moms. He remained there tall ten o'clock, and then went to Morris's house to fetch a net which he had lent him months back to cover some currant bushes. Putting the net under his arm he walked homewards, and met the officer at the place mentioned. He stated that he did not get, over the fence, and that he had not been on Mr Brandreth's land alt all. Rees Morris, Evan ones, of the Ellen's Castle, and the defendant's wife gave corroborative evidence. The case was dismissed. "LA MARGUERITE'S WASH. CLAIM FOR DAMAGES AT BANGOR. At, the Bangor Clounty Court on Mon- day, before Judge Moss, William Lewis Owen, labourer, Bangor, sued the Liver- pool and North Wales Steamship Com- pany for a sum of L60 damages, sustained by the plaintiff, it was contended, in con- sequence of the reckless navigation of the steamship "La Marguerite on the 29th of June last. The steamer "Christiana" was unloading at a jetty at Garth Point, when the "La Marguerite" passed the end of Bangor Pier, coming from Ble,aumaris to Bangor. The plaintiff was working on a stage erected over the hold of the "Christiana," helping to unload the steaiper, when, in consequence of the swell caused by the "La Marguerite," the stage was upset, and the plaintiff and another man fell into the hold. As the result of the accident he had been un- able to work since. William Lewis Owen gave evidence. In cross-examination by Mr Thornton Jones, who appeared for the defendant Company, the plaintiff said he had been receiving 10a. a week compensation since the acci- dent, equal to half his wages. He had been engaged at the work described for about ten years, and during the past five years the "La Marguerite" had been run- ning past the place. The mate and agent were in charge of the operations, but neither of them warned him to get off when the "La Marguerite" came. William Jones, the other victim of the accident, gave similar evidence. He attributed the accident to, the effects of the "La Marguerite's" wash. He had on pre- vious occasions been warned to stop work under similar circumstances, but was not warned on the present occasion. He thought the "Christiana" was fast aground and that lit was quite safe to. go on with his work. Dr. Lloyd gave evidence as to the in- juries. Mr Thornton Jones submitted that no case of negligence had been made out. The Judge said that the evidence of negligence was very slight. He was pre- pared at that stage to hold that ships navigating the Straits should be navigated in such a manner as was consistent with the safety of other vessels. On previous occasions the men working on the "Christiana" had been stopped, but that was not done on this occasion. They thought they were safe. Mir Thornton Jones: Exactly, ithat is the key to the situation. It was their own negligence. Captain Young, Mr Joseph Fraser (chief engineer), Mr J. R,. Jones (chief officer), Captain Owen (Bangor Pier Master), and Captain Langdon, R.N. (of the Clio Training Ship) all gave evidence to the effect that on the occasion in question the "La Marguerite" was handled with the usual care and judgment shown by Cap- tain Young. Captain Langdon said he had often admired the splendid way in which the "La Marguerite" was brought alongside the Bangor Landing Stage, and he could suggest nothing that Captain Young could have done that he had not done under the circumstances. His Honour reserved judgment.
SERIOUS CHANCES ARE TAKEN IN NEGLECTING A CASE! OF PILES. Any person takes chances in neglecting an attack of piles. The ailment has a tendency to become chronic. The safest remedy for any form of piles, whether itching or protruding or bleeding, is Dean's ointment. In using it there is no detention from daily occupation, and the many cures by it have made it famous in every corner of the world. The following is yet another case Mr Robert, Jones, Tynsigen, Pare, Bala, N.Wales, writes:—"Dear Sir,—I am ] writing to tell you how I have benefited by using Doan's ointment. I ha,d suffered great pains through piles for twelve years, and had tried many remedies without good results. I had practically given up hope of ever being cuired. One day, however, while talking to a friend, he advised me to try Doan's ointment, he himself having been cured by it. I sent for a pot of it, and after a few applications I found myself improving. I persevered with the treatment, and a thorough course completely cured me. Three years have now passed since then, and I have not been troubled with the complaint, again. I am deeply thankful for the good the ointment has done me, and I hope that, other sufferers may be in- duced to give it a trial. Yours truly (Signed) Robert Jones." Piles, eczema, and other skin com- plaints, are tormenting and distressing; they spoil the sleep, make you nervous and irritable. Doan's Ointment allays the irritation and inflammation of itching skin troubles, eczema, piles, shingles, pimples, chilblains, etc. The first appli- cation gives relief, and a lasting cure fol- lows. Doan's Ointment is two shillings and ninepence a pot (six pots thirteen shillings and ninepence).

NORTH WALEISI GHIESS, ASSOCIA- TION. On Wednesday night at Chosier, at, a meeting of chess players from various parts of North Wales, it was decided to form a North Wales Chess Association, with M:r G. Saint, Ruabon, as president. It was reported that the total number of players connected with clubs was con- siderably over a hundred. Mr Chambers, Manchester, wrote offering a cup for com- petition. After the meeting a match was played between teams representing coast players and inland players. The latter, drawn from Wrexham, Mold, Denbigh. and Ruabon, were victorious by 8^ to 5^.

TRAM CAR EPISODE SWANK." They were evidently part of a party who had been playing in a Chess match with Colwyn Bay, and were returning by tram. This fact, was gleaned' from their conver- sation when they first boarded the car. One of the party who up to this time had been seen and not, heard, suddenly joined in the conversation and referred to one of the absent, players as a "Swanker" and this opened a most interesting debate as to the real meaning of the word. One more conversant with the term than the rest, said it came from the word "Swankie"; which according to Webster, meant "An active and clever young fel- low." He, who had introduced the subject, admitted that it, meant all that and more, ,and further said there were the verbs, "Swank" and "Swanker/' the noun "Swankie" and the adjective "Swanking." At this point all the seven Chessites who composed the party startedto, argue at the same time, and a, deal of useful informa- tion was lost. One declateid the intro- ducer's grammar was at fault. Another said he had no objection to being called a "Swankie," if it was not said sarcastic, but he should strongly object to it being said he either was a swank, or went, in for swanking. He understood the term, "a swank," was one who was addicted to showing off, and swanking was the act of showing off." The introducer said H was permissabl0 for a ranker, a cyclist, or the past-master of any similar pastime to swank; indeed it was impossible to indulge in any par- ticular favourite pastime without doing so, but he added, "A footballer say OD the wing, full back or custodian in the goal, had no right to swank during a cup-tie or league game, and for this reason football was not a game that depended upon one player only; success was only obtained by a team being united, each helping the other to lower their opponents' citadel, not by in- dulging in anything like swanking; such players were looked upon as "playing to the gallery," and only such players were the equals of Meredith, Crompton or Ash- croft could afford to run the risk of rous- ing the public's displeasure, and whatever they may have done in their earlier days, these players mentioned rarely indulge nowadays." "Go on," said one of the listeners, "I am enjoying this." 0, I have little more to add; but take the case, of the cyclist who can ride with- out using the handle bars; by all means let him do it if he wantis, to, in an open space on a country road, but to show off in a crowded street is swank of the most objectionable kind, because, should any accident occur through his swanking, to anybody besides himself, he should be made amenable to the law." "Then am I to understand," said one seeker for further information "that we are all more or less liable to swank 1" "Yes, that is so. I don't know what your particulairl line would be; it cer- tainly is not, at chess, judging by to-night's failure, but you may be musical and play the piano, mouth organ or any other classical instrument, and if you play vy/er so little, you are bound to swank some time or other, and no one has a right to blame you for doing so. Anyone who has an accomplishment, whatever it may be, or had handed down to him a gift, has a, perfect right to use it, and to swank to his heart's content; or, should he be a vocalist, public speaker, or amateur musician, until such time as he or she, as the case may be, have had ocular proof that their reign in pablic favour is over." "Thanks! old man; I quite admit I am not a Lasker at chess, and further I am not, a rinker, cyclist, fothaller, vocalist, musician, or public speaker, and. as I said before, if I am guilty of swanking I cer- tainly don't know it." "Well, I will think about it and let you," was the reply. He had not long to wait, for by thi,s time Ctraigydon had been reached, and the non-swanker rose to leave the car. The conductor pulled at, the cord to draw the attention of the driver to pull up at the "Request Corner," but, the passenger essayed to leave the car whilst in motion, a feat he ha,d previously carried out with any untoward acci- 1, dent; but on this occasion he came a cropper, and fell down on his knees, badly damaging his nether garments. His fare was a study, when the conductor ,came up and inquired if he was hurt, and! asked why he did not wait, as the, notice requested until the car stopped. He was not hurt he said; but he looked very dis- hevelled. By this time one or two of his chess friends had left the car, also to make inquiries. The conductor seeing no harm was done moved towards the car, saying as he did so, "Are you going on with is gentlemen?" To which they replied by returning to the car. As they boarded the tram the conductor looked back at the cause of the prolonged stoppage, and said, "That's the result of swanking." No doubt he wondered at the roars of laughter which greeted his remark, and when next the unfortunate swanker meets his friend he will be able to tell him of one particular; in which he has been known to swank.

BANGOR COUNTY COURT. ORDERS MUSTI BE OBEYED. At this court on Monday Judge M-osw, fined David Griffith Jones, manager of a grocery store at Glastinfryn, £;2 and costs- for failing to appear on a subpoena. In the afternoon Mr Roger Eivans men- tioned the matiter to his Honour, and said that Jones was now present. Jones, entering the witness-hox; said he was willing to come, but his, employer would not allow him to come sooner. His Honour said he would reduce the fine to- 10s., but it must be distinctly understood that the orders of the Court must be obeyed at any cost. As he had said over and over again, no one could say what such failures to obey the orders of the Court might lead to. They mighit lead to gross miscarriage of justice. In the course of another case, Thomas; Evans, car proprietor, Bangor, when ask- ed by the Judge what he sold a horse for' declined to give the priee, saying! it did' not affect the Icase. His Honour (sternly) You must answer the question. I am not going to have any nonsense like that. You are here to speak the truth. The Witness I am telling the truth. His Honour: You are not speaking the- whole truth. Youi listen to me. I won't have any nonsense ahouit this matter. I 'am the judge. What did you sell the- horse for? The Witness: £ 3 10s. His Honour Why didn't you tell me before ? The Witness For the sake of the man I sold it to.
